“My Mind as an Author” by Alexandra Warren

Imagine being in a public place and the only thing you can think about is how many plot bunnies for future novels you see around you. That’s exactly how my mind works now that I’ve taken on the wonderful world of Romancelandia.

Everyone and everything – except for my closest friends and family… maybe – has the possibility of showing up in one of my books mainly because of how easily inspired I am by human interactions at the most basic level. Whether it’s a father playing with his son, strangers meeting for the first time in an airport, a couple sharing coffee on a date, someone FaceTiming with a loved one on the beach; my mind is constantly registering tidbits from everything going on around me so that I can create a fictional reality later.

I enjoy being able to make my words come alive, to make my characters come alive in a way that readers connect with them on a personal level. I enjoy making readers feel what my characters feel, laugh with my characters, cry with my characters, be mad with my characters depending on the situation. And for me, that’s what being an author is all about.

So even though my mind is constantly in go-mode, observing, and saving, and taking in my surroundings, I truthfully wouldn’t have it any other way.

About Robert Germaux

Both my parents were readers. I'm talking stacks-of-books-on-their-nightstands readers. So it's no surprise that an early age, I, too, became an avid reader. Everything from sports books (especially baseball) to Nancy Drew to the Hardy Boys to almost anything about distant and exotic places. And although I've always enjoyed putting words on paper, the writer in me didn't fully emerge until I retired after three decades of teaching high school English. I quickly wrote two books aimed at middle school readers, at which point my wife urged me to try a novel for adults. As is usually the case, Cynthia's idea was a good one. Over the next few years, I wrote several books about Pittsburgh private eye Jeremy Barnes, including "Hard Court." Along the way, I took a brief hiatus from the detective genre to write "The Backup Husband," the plot line of which came to me one day when I was playing the What-if game. On that particular day, the question that occurred to me was, What if a woman suddenly realized she might be in love with two wonderful men? After "The Backup Husband," I wrote "Small Talk," my first novel about Pittsburgh police detective Daniel Hayes. I then switched gears again with "Grammar Sex (and other stuff)," a book of humorous essays. Now I’m back with "One by One," the second Daniel Hayes mystery, which will be released on June 1st. In our spare time, Cynthia and I enjoy reading (of course), seeing Broadway plays and musicals, watching reruns of our favorite TV shows, such as "Sports Night" and "The Gilmore Girls," and traveling to some of those distant and exotic places I used to read about as a child. So far, we've been fortunate enough to walk in the sands of Waikiki, swim in the warm waters of the South Pacific and enjoy a romantic dinner in Paris.
